The UK Solar Missions Forum will take place on 8th January 2015 at the RAS. The meeting will be structured in order to provide community input for the Solar System Advisory Panel (SSAP) document which will aid STFC prioritisation of future facilities/instruments for UK solar physics.

We aim to keep plenty of time for discussion so lunch is longer than normal. The outcome of the meeting will be input to the SSAP strategic document through our SSAP members.

We encourage input on future possibilities, but this time are concentrating on currently funded, in build, and future missions that are at proposal stage (or close to) with a potential funding source.

We hope to see you in January.

Chair: Dave Williams
